Still thinking of my friend’s journal from the previous post and the questions she hoped her grandmother would write about. Years ago I’d read in a booklet that contains just the kind of questions to ask, “Life’s most important lessons are carefully preserved in the human heart and mind.” Jotted that down along with some of the most interesting questions. Here are some of them.
*What special quality do you remember about your mother? Father?
*Did you have any childhood collections?
*What kind of funny old wives tales did your elders try to teach you?
*As a child, how much did a loaf of bread, a candy bar, a gallon of gas each cost?
*What traditional events were held in your community when you were a child?
*What lessons did you learn from making a mistake as a child?
*What did your parents teach you without ever saying a word about it?
*Who taught you to spell your name?
*What fads did you participate in growing up?
I have a few more but I will save those for another post. Wish I could remember from where I copied them because I am sure there are so many more good ones.
